WSM, too hot - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Water. Water. Water. I had the same problem on my first smoke with my wsm and then i filled the water pan to the max and it dropped the temp down significantly.

Several years ago before I bought a WSM, I read all of the posts form folks replacing the water pan with a clay pot or filling it with sand and so when I finally bought the WSM 22" I tried all of the methods folks posted. And in the end I went back to the way Webber designed it. I put water in the pan and all of my initial heat problems went away. With the pan full of water it increases the humidity in the smoking chamber and I feel it gives me a better more tender product. And because you are boiling water you are creating a heat sink that helps regulate the temp.
